An Appeal on behalf of THE EMERGENCY OPEN-AIR NURSERIES, by RAY STRACHEY (Mrs. Oliver Strachey)
Among the schemes that have been organised to mitigate the evils of unemployment, one of the most appealing is the provision of Open-Air Nurseries for the children of under school age who are in special danger of suffering by reason of the plight of their parents.
In these nurseries the children receive care and good food, and many serious ailments that result from malnutrition are checked at the start.
Nurseries have already been established at Sunderland, North Shields, Byker, Leeds, Middlesbrough, Merthyr, Brynmawr, and Hoxton. One of the most interesting features of the scheme is the eager co-operation of the children's fathers in helping to construct the light, sunny shelters, taking care of the gardens, making and repairing equipment and toys ; the mothers in washing, mending, and cooking.

JOHN MOREL (baritone)
Relayed from The Park Lane Hotel
This song is one of the minor curiosities of German song literature, a song in which Wagner challenges Schumann on his own ground by setting Heine's famous poem of the two French grenadiers abandoned in the retreat from Moscow-and introducing the ' Marseillaise ' just as Schumann did in his version written a little later.
There is a human story behind the song. Wagner wrote it in 1839, during his first miserable stay in Paris. The Opera would not produce his Rienzi ; he and Minna were desperately poor; he was obliged to turn to anything that would bring in a little money-musical journalism, the arranging of opera pot-pourris for the cornet, the composition of songs which he hoped would catch the attention of fashionable French singers-and hoped in vain. ' The Two Grenadiers ', a setting of a French translation of the poem, was one of these.

A story written and broadcast by S. P. B. Mais is a thing to hear. As fine a writer as he is a broadcaster, he conjures up here in a few words one of those winter days we know so well. 'It was just not raining.' A meet at an old Elizabethan house, forty riders, as many motors, a hundred on foot. Those who try to follow are here with those who 'know' which way the fox will run. Dick Queensland, a retired huntsman, was one of those. He knew the fox when found wouldn't take to the hills... but it did.
And out of that, in his straightforward unaffected style, Mais mingles the earthly with the unearthly'. A fox with a grey mask. Poor Fanciful and Melody! For here, for once, you needn't pity the fox. This story will hold you to the end.
